Default Beer Alchemy now on iPhone!

http://www.kentplacesoftware.com/pro...hemyTouch.html

Thanks Kent Place Software!

Just installed it... wireless sync is awesome. It is crashing when I try to access one batch... will need to look into that as it's the batch I plan to brew this week.

You son of a bitch XD

I'll c/p what I had in my thread that totally wasn't a duplicate when I started it:

I don't know how much I need a mobile app -- I've been having fun doing the calculations myself in a notebook -- but I figure it could be good with the syncing feature for going to the LHBS, etc. But... it's $15. I know there are some apps that are more than $5 or $10 that actually get purchased, but -- no offense to Kent Place -- there's no way I need a homebrewing app enough to pay more than $3 for it. If there were an intro price or a 'you have BA and get a discount' thing then maybe, but...

Brewpal is .99 cents. No way I would pay $15 for an iphone brewing app. Brewsmith on my PC maybe, but not an iphone app.

If you get in touch with me at support at kentplacesoftware.com address I'd like to look at the batch that's crashing.

As for the price, it's your money, you decide if you want to pay. If other people want to charge a dollar a go that's their decision and not one I plan on copying.

I would however like to do bundle pricing but it's not currently feasible using the AppStore.

I love brewmath and would love to switch to this for most of my brewing needs. I love the idea of being able to pull it out and work up a recipe or having the recipes with me at club and the like. I see you can import files, I am currently using beersmith, is there any way to import these recipes or would I have to enter them all manually? That would probably be a deal breaker.

In theory yes...but currently there's a few problems with BeerXML import. I have fixed them but I'm now waiting on Apple to approve the 1.0.1 update.

This sort of delay is one of the things you have to deal with. On the Mac I can upload a fix within minutes of fixing it - on the iPhone it takes a week.

I understand, I'll probably wait till 1.0.1 then. I love your products though and if I had a mac I would use Beer Alchemy, it's pretty slick.

If Brewpal does everything you want then great. BeerAlchemy Touch does rather more in terms of being walkabout record of all your recipes and your inventory , has syncing with BA on the Mac and can import export BeerXML and Promash files (or at least it will import BeerXML properly in 1.0.1 ).

I looked at Brewpal and if I thought it was the answer to everyone's needs I wouldn't have bothered taking up hundreds of hours of my free time writing BeerAlchemy Touch.

as much as the price turns me off, the screenshots turn me on. great looking program. I may just buy it for the wireless syncing (for inventory)
